Over $9,000 of supplies were donated, including backpacks, notebooks and more.
“We are thrilled to be able to give back to the schools in the communities that we serve,” stated Asif Dakri, Chief Executive Officer. It is our privilege to drop off our donations in person and to see the wonderful students who will be learning and growing throughout the year.”
